2008 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

  • 46,500 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Titan. The contact took the vehicle into the dealer for a recall related to the fuel gauge system under campaign 10V07400. The contact was informed by the dealer that he must have driven over something because the fuel tank was pushed up under the vehicle. After some independent investigations, the contact noticed that the fuel injection was molded which caused thin spots on the fuel tank. The manufacturer did not agree with the assessments of the failure. The failure and current mileages were 46500.

In the beginning of the year I received a recall letter for my Nissan Titan concerning the fuel sending unit and a problem with the brake peddle. I called the dealer and was told that the parts were not in yet. I called again in the middle of June and was told that the parts have not been released by the manufacturer. I called Nissan corporate and was told that I could take it to the dealer. The dealer laughed and said "you could bring it but it may sit here for six months or more". I have been told that the recall letter is all the manufacturer is required to do. Is this true" where are the parts to fix the problem? is there some Agency that makes sure that the manufacturer follows through on the recalls in a timely manner"

Driving my 2008 Nissan pro 4X king cab. Fuel gauge read 1/8 tank and computer said I had 8 miles more fuel. Previously when it gave those numbers I had 4-5 gallons of fuel left. Ran out of gas. Fortunately I was not on the interstate doing 70 in rush hour traffic. Would have been difficult to get to shoulder of an 8 lane highway.

Sending unit for my Nissan Titan failed, vehicle stopped. Was in traffic and became stranded for 1hr. I bought vehicle new and have only 20,000 miles. Was towed($95) and still under warranty. Spoke to a co-worker with the same vehicle, that had the same incident to occur.

I bought my 2008 Nissan Titan 8/20/08, everything was great until odm hit about 3,000 miles. That's when my fuel gauge was inconsistent on it's readings and every time I pumped gas into my truck it would spill gas out. I took my truck into the Nissan dealer I bought the truck from and they kept it for 3 1/2 hours when I went to pick it up they said they found no problems and I should change my gas grade. I told them I only put 91 in and to go to a lesser grade wouldn't make any sense. For the next few months I wiggled and repositioned the nozzle to help prevent the gas from spilling from the truck, most of the time this helps with less fuel coming out. I called them again and told them I am still having the same two problems they said again they hadn't found anything wrong but I could schedule another appointment. I told them I would go to another mechanic. I did and because the truck is still under warranty they said I needed to go to the dealership. After explaining to them what was happening they set up a meeting with another Nissan dealership, where I learned that all 08 and 09 tiitans have numerous fuel problems. They did replace my fuel sensor and said with the gas spilling out while pumping I would have to pull the nozzle almost all the way out and hold the lever only a quarter of the way in to prevent the gas spilling out. I asked him why this was happening he said that the fuel system couldn't handle much gas per second because the way the fuel system was built it builds up to much pressure and in return gas spills out. I told him I would like it fixed and said there was no fix for it except to pull out the nozzle and lightly hold the lever. I told him I didn't feel that was safe for my family to be driving around in a vehicle that builds pressure in the fuel of all places he said my only other option was to get another vehicle.

After fueling my Nissan Titan to full the fuel gage only reads 3/4 tank. After about 10 minutes or so of driving the needle goes to full.
